• Refreshed Yahoo iOS App Hits Apple App Store

    On Monday, Yahoo! rolled out its refreshed iOS app. Hitting the App Store this morning, Yahoo! says its new app brings users the best of the web in a virtually endless stream of personalized stories.

    The more you use the app, the more relevant stories you'll start to see. The app’s redesign is complete with beautiful and modern touches - it’s fast and easy to use.
    As expected, the revamped app takes full advantage of Summly's news summarization technology. Yahoo just acquired the company last month for an undisclosed sum, although estimates peg the price to have been somewhere in the $30 million range.

    On Monday morning, Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer shared her thoughts on the new app in a post on the official Yahoo! Corporate blog.

    "The new Yahoo! mobile app is also smarter, using Summly’s natural-language algorithms and machine learning to deliver quick story summaries," Mayer writes. "We acquired Summly less than a month ago, and we’re thrilled to introduce this game-changing technology in our first mobile application. And, with the immersive imagery of our virtually endless newsfeed, the new Yahoo! app has both great technology and beautiful design front and center. Because searching for great content is also core to the Yahoo! experience, we’ve also improved the search experience with better video and image search."

    The Yahoo! app for iPhone and iPod Touch is available now.
